Obama refused to help Syrians who needed his help either because he was too weak or just didn’t care. Either way, these traits Americans do not want to see in a leader.
Because of this people across the Arab world are honoring president Trump in a few unique ways and shaming Obama in the process. They have started calling “Abu Ivanka al-Amriki,” or “Father of Ivanka, the American,” on social media. These nicknames are a way of admiring and respecting the president.
One CNN international correspondent tweeted:
“ONE SYRIAN TELLS ME THE NEW NOM DE GUERRE FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP ON THE GROUND IN NORTHERN SYRIA IS ABU IVANKA AL-AMRIKI.”
One Syrian tells me the new nom de guerre for President Trump on the ground in Northern Syria is Abu Ivanka al Amriki. #syria

Kassen Eid, a Syrian refugee who survived a 2013 chemical weapons attack said:
“WHEN I SAW PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THE UNITED STATES TAKING ACTION FOR THE FIRST TIME AFTER SIX YEARS OF CALLING FOR HELP, WE FELT HAPPY AND GRATEFUL.”
Some restaurant owners in Syria have honored Trump with changing the names of their shops. One Syrian man who opposes Assad said he wants to name his first son after Trump. Najim Hassan, a Syrian who lives in a city occupied by rebels against Assad said:
“MAYBE YOU IN THE WEST HATE TRUMP, BUT HE HAS ALREADY DONE FAR MORE FOR US THAN OBAMA. WE LOVE HIM BECAUSE HE DOES MORE THAN HE SAYS, HE’S A MAN OF ACTION AND AT LEAST HE GIVES US SOMETHING TO HOPE FOR.”
Barack left a huge mess for Trump to sort out. And as Trump is showing the world, action is rewarded and cowardice is taken advantage of.
